Working with a Builder / Developer?

Join us in Basking Ridge on Sunday, September 17, from noon to 4 (the usual potluck, of course) for an enlightening conversation about cohousing — that will now include the possibility of working on an Ecovillage project with a professional builder or developer. RSVP here.

Adding to a growing list of possibilities, we’re in discussions with a South Jersey developer about creating an Ecovillage as part of a larger housing development project. We’ll share what we know about this opportunity at the meeting.

Both for-profit and non-profit developers are becoming interested in building new Ecovillages and cohousing neighborhoods, and converting older developments into a new vision of community living for the current generation. We believe it’s possible to combine the best of the ecovillage community creation process and the work of the builder / developer, which includes commissioning the design around the desires of the first cohort of eco-community residents.
